** YOUNG MARINES!! **

S.P.A.C.E.S.

TO DATE THE UNIT HAS HAD MULTIPLE YOUNG MARINES ATTEND VARIOUS EVENTS THROUGH THE NATIONAL SPACES PROGRAM. THESE EVENTS INCLUDED JUNIOR, SENIOR AND ADVANCED LEADERSHIP SCHOOLS AS WELL AS THE MACH II AVIATION CAMP. SOME OF THESE YOUNG MARINES HAVE BEEN TO MULTIPLE SCHOOLS. THESE YOUNG MARINES WERE NOT AWARDED THESE PRIVILEGES.........THEY EARNED THEM. THEY EARNED THEM BY SEEKING OUT WHAT THE CRITERIA WAS NEEDED TO BE MET IN ORDER TO ATTEND THESE EVENTS AND SCHOOLS. THESE MOTIVATED YOUNG MARINES THEN WENT ON TO MEET THE CRITERIA. SPACES PROGRAMS ARE OPEN AND AVAILABLE TO ALL YOUNG MARINES PROVIDING YOU MEET THE REQUIRED STANDARDS. THESE STANDARDS CAN BE FOUND BELOW. IN ORDER TO ADVANCE IN RANK YOU HAVE TO MEET CERTAIN STANDARDS INCLUDING ATTENDING THE VARIOUS LEADERSHIP SCHOOLS. THIS IS NOT A LAST MINUTE DECISION. YOU MUST SEEK OUT WHAT YOU NEED TO ACHIEVE WELL IN ADVANCE OF APPLYING. MRS BELLER AND RIDER WILL ASSIST IN ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE, BUT YOU THE YOUNG MARINE MUST DO THEIR HOMEWORK TO FIND OUT WHAT IT TAKES TO  ACHIEVE ACCEPTANCE TO ONE OF THESE PROGRAMS.

***************************************

Below is a link to the guide listing the requirements and knowledge to be mastered for each rank.  The requirements are on pages 12 - 15.  As you can tell it takes more than passing the test to get promoted.Young Marine qualifications that must be also met along with having to stand an oral promotion board in front of a panel lead by the XO and Young Marine peers. Remember.......don't wait for the class to be given to learn this knowledge. Promotions are in your hands, not ours.
Please note that while it is the responsibility of the staff to make entries to the Young Marine's Record Book, it is also the responsibility of the Young Marine to review and make sure all things are correct in the online record.
